Wing collars are for white tie or waiters. The other options depend more on your personal taste. The black tie guide website is pretty good.

You know what seems unnecessary but is actually surprisingly practical? A coin pocket!
 How do you wear the sleekish black bluchers? Grey trousers, navy blazer and sedate non-brown tie?
 You're forgetting tan shoes. Can't really wear summer fits involving very light grey/white/cream trousers without tan shoes. Also, I'd have at least one pair of longwings instead of 2 shortwings.

A very round and bulbous beefroll loafer should not be worn with suits for example.  It's harder to find the right fit for loafers, as there are no laces, so you should really try them on in person.
